I have been involved with dogs since I was a small child. My breed of choice was the German Shepherd. My earliest memories are of me in the yard with our two dogs, Princess and King. My love of animals came from my Dad. He was guilty of bringing home plenty of strays and I have done the same. I consider myself a canine social worker.

My first Cane Corso was the result of an almost two-year search. At the time, I had an aging mixed breed and two German Shepherd rescues who remain with us today. My initial search started because I wanted yet another indoor dog and this time I wanted one that didn't shed and that had less hair than my two Shepherds. I've looked at Pharaoh Hounds, American Staffordshire Terriers, and many other breeds. An Internet search resulted in a picture of About Time's Causing Chaos to appear. I was blown away by that picture and from that moment on, endeavored to obtain a puppy from that particular dog. I soon learned that Chaos was no longer being bred but filled out an application and was approved two years before actually purchasing About Time's Lilliandil ("Azula").

I recall vividly picking Azula up from the airport. We got lost trying to find the area near the airport where they actually kept live animals and after receiving several phone calls and many directions, we arrived. After removing Azula from her crate, we proudly showed her off to the airline workers and told them what breed she was. Soon, we were on our way home.

My goals with Azula have been to try any and everything because I know that she is more than capable. Although stubborn, Azula is very intelligent and I've taught her many things with time, patience, and not a little bit of forethought on my part. She has several performance titles and hopefully, I can add an OTCH (obedience champion) to her name. We are in training year round with the local obedience club, of which I am a member.

The newest addition to my program is Pirate's Den Mamou d'Evangeline. Mamou is a firecracker and we are excited to see how she matures. She comes from a line of very nice dogs and I was able to personally interact with her sire and dam along with many other of the Pirate's Den dogs. It's not an experience that I will soon forget.

My goal in breeding is to produce dogs that are healthy, mentally sound, and correct according to the AKC/FCI standards. That's how I came up with my kennel name, Triple Crown. The combination of these 3 attributes, in my mind, is the ultimate goal for any good breeding program and what every potential owner should be looking for.
